52 Rolls Week 12:52

First a Happy Easter to You All! More ‘interesting times’ with color film……..We’re starting my Gardening Odyssey for this Year.  Gardening always a challenge in this high altitude semi-arid environment.  Growing seasons are short and the soil is poor.  And always looming, the treacherous spring storm, this year an actual Blizzard that occured this past…

Roll 8: A Wider Shade of Pinhole

Film: Kodak Ektar 120 film – ISO 100 Camera: terraPin 6X9 3D printed pinhole camera, 40mm, f/174 I have greatly been enjoying wider angles in my pinhole photography, and my terraPin 6X6 recently evolved to a wider 6X9. Of course, the format size is wider, but the angular width of the photo is actually a function of “focal…

Week #40 The Pinholga film swap adventure

Film swap between Moni and me I didn’t take any pictures in week 39, so no post from that week. Week 40 was a fun photo week, but with a bad ending. Monica set up a Pinholga film swap project, and I was the first one to receive the Holga 120PC pinhole camera. She had…

Roll 31: Urban Monochrome

It took me a while to post this one.   I have gotten behind again so I’m adding all of the images to a gallery to streamline it a bit. These were all taken with my trusty EXA on Kodak TMAX 100, 35mm, and I was part of a photowalk group in downtown Reno, NV.  It’s…

It’s the Hasselblad X-Pan for Roll 24

I’m still finding the focusing on the X-Pan to be a bit tricky. The screen is much darker than my Hasselblad 500 CM. Out of a roll of 36, these were a few of my favorites made in and around the Portland Saturday Market.     I also walked around parts NW and SW Portland…

Roll 22: Re-Rolling Film

For those of you who have been paying attention to my film fumbles, you know that I destroyed a roll of 120 film attempting to make it fit into a camera that only wanted 620.   If you missed that adventure, please check out Roll 21. I took some friendly advice and tried to salvage…

Week 15 – Olympus OM-1 and Kodak Ektar Film

The friends who gave me the Bronica S also gave me two Olympus bodies and about a dozen Zukio lenses ranging from wide angle to 200mm in superb shape. The OM-1 was already a favorite and this gift has made it even more valuable. The OM and I bring you more spring prettiness this week.…

Roll 15: Carson City, Nevada

This roll was shot on my Nikon FM2 with Kodak Ektar 100, 35mm film.  My subject:   Carson City, the capital of Nevada. I was out and about the other day near the Governor’s mansion in the old, historical district.   Nevada is a unique place in that the Governor’s mansion has a private residence but…
